Breathtaking buildings, the place is packed with history, art and great atmosphere. Short walk to great shopping, restaurants and cafés

If you are in Florence this area is a must (going inside not so much). The building itself is much larger than the pictures, truly magnificent piece of architecture of humanity. Beware of potential pickpockets around the area, it can be very crowded at times.

The piazza is usually crowded with tourists, but it’s fun to stand back and watch the tour groups and the individuals in the piazza. You can wander around and get closeups of the Duomo and the bell tower, but be patient with the crowds.

We visited Piazza del Duomo twice on our trip to Florence. Apart from the beautiful buildings, there are many shops, cafes and restaurants. If you want to purchase leather, Florence (or Italy) is the place. I purchased a lovely leather jacket albeit too long in...More

We stayed by the Duomo and decided to check out this area since we were unable to get into it. The area has a ton of restaurants and shops and is very lively. I would recommend if you're in the area.

There is a lot of space in the piazza so you are free to wander at leisure around the beautiful Duomo that dominates the piazza. There are cafes and restaurants in the piazza to sit and watch the passing traffic

Excellent place to be. It is a little crowded but you can walk and take pictures as you want. Safe, clean and there is that fantastic building to see, Il Duomo.

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

Hello! This is a square, so it is accessible for wheelchairs. About bathrooms for wheelchair users, I am not 100% sure, but probably they exist at the ticket office in the square and also at the museum for the Dome art... More
